The Illusion of Life
Critical appreciations about the poetry of
Professor Al Cistelecan within the
heading Avant la lettre, under the title Between reflection and attitude,
appeared in the magazine Familia nr.11-12 November-December 2015, pag.16-18, Al
Cistelecan considers about the poetry of meditation, of Sorin Cerin, that:
"From what I see, Sorin Cerin is a kind
of volcano textually, in continuously,
and maximum eruption, with a writing equally frantic, as and, of convictions. In
poetry,relies on gusts reflexive and on the sapiential enthusiasm, cultivating,
how says alone in the subtitle of the
Non-sense of the Existence, from here the poems "of
One approach among all risky -
not of today, yesterday, but from always - because he tend to mix where not
even is, the work of poetry, making a kind of philosophizing versified, and
willy-nilly, all kinds of punishments and morality.
Not anymore is case to remind
ourselves of the words said by Maiorescu, to Panait Cerna, about
"philosophical poetry," because the poet, them knows, and, he very
well, and precisely that wants to face: the risk of to work only in idea, and,
of to subordinate the imaginative, to the conceptual.
Truth be told, it's not for Sorin
Cerin, no danger in this sense, for he is in fact a passional, and never reach
the serenity and tranquility Apolline of
the thought, on the contrary, recites with pathos rather from within a trauma which
he tries to a exorcise, and to sublimates, into radical than from inside any
peace of thought or a reflexive harmonies.
Even what sounds like an idea
nude, transcribed often aphoristic, is actually a burst of attitude, a
transcript of emotion - not with coldness, but rather with heat (was also
remarked, moreover, manner more prophetic of the enunciations).
But, how the method, of, the
taking off, lyrical, consists in a kind of elevation of everything that comes,
up to the dignity of articulating their reflexive (from where the listing, any references
to immediately, whether biographical or more than that), the poems by Cerin,
undertake steep in the equations big existential and definitive, and they not
lose time in, domestic confessions.
They attack the Principle of
reality, not its accidents. Thus, everything is raised to a dignity problematic, if no and of other nature, and
prepared for a processing, densified.
Risks of the formula, arise fatal, and here, because is seen immediately
the mechanism of to promote the reality to dignity of the lyrism.
One of the mechanisms comes from
expressionist heritage (without that Sorin Cerin to have something else in
common with the expressionists), of the capitalized letter, through which
establishes suddenly and unpredictably, or humility radicalized , or panic in
front of majesty of the word.
Usually the uppercase, baptizes
the stratum "conceptual" (even if some concepts are metaphors),
signaling the problematic alert.
It is true, Sorin Cerin makes
excess and wastage, of the uppercase, such that, from a while, they do not more
create, any panic, no godliness, because abundance them calms effects of this
kind, and spoil them into a sort of grandiloquence.
The other mechanism of the elevation in dignity rely on a certain -
perhaps assumed, perhaps premeditated - pretentious discourse, on a thickening
lexical, and on a deep and serious declamation.
It is insinuated - of lest, even
establishes - and here is an obvious procedure of imaginative recipe, redundant
How is and normal - even inevitable - in a
lyrical of reflection what wants to coagulate around certain cores conceptual,
the modality immediate of awareness of these nodes conceptual, consists in
materializing the abstractions, making them sensual is just their way of to do
But at, Sorin Cerin, imaginative
mechanics is based on a simple use of the genitive, which materialize the abstractions, (from where endless
pictures like "the thorns of the Truth," "chimney sweeps of the
Fulfillments," " the brushes of Deceptions" etc. etc.), under,
which most often is a button of personification.
On the scale of decantation in
metaphors we stand, thus, only on the first steps, what produces
simultaneously, an effect of candor imaginative (or discoursive), but and one
Probable but that this confidence in the primary processes is due to the stake on decanting of the
thought, stake which let, in subsidiary, the imaginative action (and on the one
symbolized more so) as such.
But not how many or what ideas
roam, through Sorin Cerin's poems are, however the most relevant, thing (the
idea, generally, but and in this particular case, has a degree of indifference,
On the contrary, in way somewhat
paradoxically, decisive, not only defining, it's the attitude in which they
gather, the affect in which coagulates.
Beneath the appearance of a
speech projected on "thought", Sorin Cerin promotes, in fact, an
lyricism (about put to dry) of, emotions existential (not of intimate
The reflexivity of the poems is
not, from this perspective, than a kind of penitential attitude, an expression
of hierarchies, of violent emotions.
Passionate layer is, in reality,
the one that shake, and he sees himself in almost all its components, from the
ones of blaming, to the ones of piety, or tenderness sublimated (or, on the
contrary, becoming sentimentalist again).
The poet is, in substance, an
exasperated of state of the world and the human condition and starting from
here, makes exercises with sarcasm (cruel, at least, as, gush), on account of
"consumer society" or on that of the vanity of "Illusions of the
It's a fever of a figures of style
that contains a curse, which gives impetus to the lyrics, but which especially
highlights discoursive, the exasperation in front of this general degradation.
So general, that she comprised
and transcendental, for Sorin Cerin is more than irritated by the
instrumentalization of the God (and, of the faith) in the world today.
Irritation in front of corruption
the sacred, reaches climax, in lyrics of maximum, nerve blasphemous
("Wickedness of Devil is called Evil, / while of the God, Good. ",
but and others, no less provocative and" infamous " at the address
the Godhead); but this does not happen, than because of the intensity and
purity of his own faith (Stefan Borbely highlighted the energy of fervor from
the poetry of Cerin), from a kind of devotional absolutism.
For that not the lyrics, of challenge and blame, do,
actually Cerin, on the contrary: lyrics of devotion desperate and passionate,
through which him seeks "on Our True God / so different from the one of
cathedrals of knee scratched / at the cold walls and inert of the greed of the
Illusion of Life ".
It is the devotional fever from
on, the reverse, of imprecations and sarcasm, but precisely she is the one that
contaminates all the poems.
From a layer of ideals, squashed,
comes out, with verve passionate, the attitudes, of Cerin, attitudes eruptive,
no matter how, they would be encoded in a lyrical of reflections. "
PhD Professor Elvira Sorohan - An existentialist poet of
the 21st Century
To fully understand the literary chronicle written by
Elvira Sorohan in Convorbiri Literare, “Literary Conversations”, which refers
to an article written by Magda Cârneci regarding Trans-poetry, and published in
România literară, “Romania literary”, where specified what namely is poetry
genuine, brilliant, the great poetry, on which a envies the poets of the last
century, Elvira Sorohan, specifies in the chronicle dedicated to the poetry of
Cerin, from, Convorbiri Literare, “Literary
Conversations”, number 9 (237), pages 25-28, 2015 under the title An
existentialist poet of the 21st century, that:
Without understanding what is "trans-poetry", which probably is
not more poetry, invoking a term coined by Magda Cârneci, I more read, however,
poetry today and now I'm trying to say something about one certain.
Dissatisfied of "insufficiency of contemporary
poetry" in the same article from in România literară, "Literary
Romania", reasonably poetess accuses in block, how, that what
"delivers" now the creators of poetry, are not than notations of "little
feeling", "small despairs" and "small thinking. "
Paraphrasing it on Maiorescu, harsh critical of the
diminutives cultivated by Alecsandri, you can not say than that poetry resulting from such notation is also low (to
the cube, if enumeration stops at three).
The cause identified by Magda Cârneci, would be the lack of
inspiration, that tension psychical, specific the men of art, an experience
spontaneous, what gives birth, uncontrollably, at creation.
It is moment inspiring, in the case of poetry, charged of
impulses affective, impossible to defeated rationally, an impulse on that it
you have or do not it have, and, of, which is responsible the vocation.
Simple, this is the problem, you have vocation, you have
I have not really an opinion formed about poetry of Magda
Cârneci, and I can not know, how often inspiration visits her, but if this
state is a grace, longer the case to look for recipes for to a induces ?
And yet, in the name of the guild, preoccupation the
poetess, for the desired state, focuses interrogative: "... the capital
question that arises is the following: how do we to have access more often, more controlled and not just by
accident, to those states intense, at the despised , at
those levels, others of ours, for which the poetry has always been a witness
(sic!) privileged ".
We do not know whom belongs the contempt, but we know that
the inspiration is of the poet born, not made.
The latter not being than a craftsman and an artist.
I have in front three volumes of lyrics of the poet, less
known and not devoid of inspiration, Sorin Cerin, ordered in a logical
decrescendo, understandable, Non - sense of the Existence, the Great silences,
Death, all appeared in 2015, at the Publishing Paco, from Bucharest.
After the titular ideas, immediately is striking, and
poetic vocabulary of the first poem, and you're greeted with the phrase
"Illusion of Life" that spelled with capital letters.
It is, in substance, an expression inherited from
vocabulary consecrated of the existentialist, enough to suspect what brand will
have the poems.
Move forward with reading, being curious to see you how the
poet remains on same chord of background, and how deep, how seriously lives in
this idea, not at all new.
And it is not new for that the roots of the existentialism,
reformulated modern, draw their sap from the skepticism of biblical,
melancholic Ecclesiastes, discouraged, in the tragic consciousness of finitude
It is the King biblical, an, existentialist avant la lettre.
He discovers that " weather is to you be born, and a
time is to die", otherwise "all is hunting of wind".
What else can be
said new in our time, even in personal formula, when the existentialism has
been intensively supported philosophically, in centuries XIX, and, XX, from
Kierkegaard and up to Sartre, with specific nuances.
A poem in the terms, of the existentialism status, more
can interested the being of the our days, slave of the visual image
and the Internet, only through adaptations or additions updated, complementary
the central idea, and not finally, by the power of the return over of the self.
It is about what you are trying to achieve the poet Sorin
Cerin, leaving us, from the beginning, the impression that he lives the miracle
creative, the inspiration.
Wanting to guide the reader to search for a specific kind
of poetry cultivated in these volumes (with one and the same cover), author
subtitled them, ne varietur
"Poems of meditation", as and are at the level of ideas.
But how deep and how
personal, is the meditation, you can not say than at the end of reading,
when you synthesize what namely aspects of ontology and from what
perspective, intellectual and
emotional, them develop the poet.
Certainly, the existentialist poetry vocabulary universal,
recognizable, is now redistributed in an another topic, what leads to
combinations surprising of new , some daring, or terribly tough, such as those
concerning the church.
Reading only one of the three volumes is like as you them
read on all, are singing on same chord
with minimal renewal from, a poem to another.
The poet closes in a unitary conceptual sphere, from here
the specific rhetoric.
Wherever you open one of the volumes, you are in the center
of the universe poetic of the same ideas, the same attitude of skepticism
At the level of language, the same vocabulary, well-tuned
with the conceptual sphere, is recombined in new and new phrases with updates
related to today's environment, and even immediately of the Being, thrown into the world to atone for the
It is known, because sages said, "Eva's son does not
live in a world devoid of wails".
The ambition to build a personal meditation, impossible to
achieve at the level of poetic vocabulary, already tired, is compensated by the
art of combination of the words, without being able to avoid redundant
frequency of some phrases.
The most frequent,
sometimes deliberately placed and twice in the same poem is "Illusion of
Dozens of others keywords, complementary, surprises by
ostentatious use, to emphasize the idea of "Non-sense of Existence".
Are preferred, series of words written with uppercase:
"Moment," "Immortality," "Illusion,"
"Absurd," "Silence," "Death,"
"Eternity", "Absolute Truth", "Dream", "Free
Will", "Original Sin", "Love", "Loneliness",
"Alienation", "God" and many others.
The phrase brings here and now, living problematized of the
existence is "Consumer Society".
Is released from
poetry a frenzy of duplication of word, what supports the idea.
Often this exuberant energy of rearrangement of words, covers
what you looking for in poems composed on one and the same theme, namely,
living intense affective of feeling of "illusion of life" inside, not
Here, we more mention of manner to distinguish the
expressive words spelled with a capital letter.
Rain of uppercase tends to flood few basic meanings of the
And more there's a particularity, the punctuation.
After each verse, finished or not as, understood,
grammatical or not, it put a comma; the point is put preferably only after the
Otherwise than biblical Ecclesiastes, our poet, more
revolted, than melancholic, do hierarchies of vanities pretty little ordered
that you to can follow clear ideas.
The significances is agglomerating, in one and the same
poem, like Hierarchy of the Vanity.
But it's not the only one.
Of blame can be contemporary reality which provokes on
multiple planes, poet's sensibility.
The word "the vanity" is engaged in a combination
serious, sharp, put to accompany even the phenomenon of birth of the world, for
to suggest, finally, by joins culinary very original, willfully, vulgar,
disgust, "nausea", ŕ la Sartre, left behind by
the consciousness of the absurd of
I sent at the poem, Industry Meat Existential: "Plow
of the Vanity dig deep, / in the dust of the Existence, / wanting to sow the
genes of the Illusion of Life, / for to be born the World, / after a prolonged
gestation, / in womb without limits, of the Lie, / that rests on Truth for to
exist, / ... ravens blacks of the thoughts, / by developing, / A true Industry
of the Meat Existential, / beginning, / from steaks of, dreams on the barbecue
of the Absurd, / up to, / sausage of highest quality of the Hopelessness. "
What you find in this poem: paradox, nonsense, nihilism,
disillusionment, dreams made ashes, all this and more will multiply, kaleidoscopic
recombine in all creation contained in these volumes.
If, the notions and synthetic concepts contained in words
maintains their meaning constant, the fate of the "word" is not the
same, seems to go toward exhaustion, as and the force of renewal of poetry.
Have and the words their fate, apart from poetry, as the
At first, paradoxically, "Autumn sentimental" is
forsaken by the "harvests passionate of words" frantically collected,
by the temper ignited of the poet in love only of certain words, those from
Sometimes, "Flocks, of words, / furrow the sky of
registry changed, the word is tormented as a tool of media, violent, rightly
incriminated of poet: "Words lacustrine / cry in pots of Martyrs, / put at
the windows of brothels of Newspapers ...".
Is deplored the fate of the words employed unusual,
grotesque: "At butchery of Words, / in the street corner of the Destiny /
are sold bones of phrases rotten, / legs
of meanings for fried ...".
And with this fragment I have illustrated the originality
resentful word combinations, which give free course the ideas, a poetic
attitude provoked by the revolt against the nonsense of existence.
metaphorise "the winter of the Words, / which snows over our Days
..." and is deplored their fate, the falling "in the Mud, of some
Words, / obscene and full of invective", and finally, their death:
"Cemeteries of words are strung in the souls, / what they will and hopes
at Resurrection ... ".
Here the words came back to poetry.
But, the word is only the tool what not is only of the
poet's, only of his, is the problem of background of existence illusory,
perceived as such, in the existentialism terms from the early 21st century .
This is the core, the leitmotif of dozens of poems signed
by Sorin Cerin, distributed studied, I suppose symbolic numerological, in each
volume 77 each, neither more or less.
From the seed of this idea generously sown, rises for the
poet tired of so much, kneaded thinking: "Herbs of questions what float
lazily over the eyelids / of the Sunset, / what barely can keep ajar, / in the
horizon of some Answers, / what appear to be migrated toward the cold distances
of the Forgetfulness. "
The note meditative of these lyrics is not entirely discouraging.
The poet is neither depressed nor anxious, because he has a
He always goes from the beginning with undefeated
statements the will, to understand, without accepting, as, thus, may to return toward the knowledge of self.
In poetic images rare, is outlined a kind of summary of
poetic discourse, focused in the poetry
The Hierarchy of the Vanity, ended in contemporaneity terms of the absurd.
It's a way to renew what was more said, that "we eat
absurd on bread."
The plural indicates in poet an exponent in the name of man
in general, "the granite" signifying the mystery impenetrable,
of which is now facing "cane
thoughtfully" "climbed up on the rocks of Life / we want to
understand the granite as it is, / a reed conscious of self.
|| Demolish the
pillars of Nature of the Illusion of Life, / trying to put in their place, / A
Dream far stranger of ourselves. || ruined the Weakness , / ... becoming our own
wrecks, / what wander to nowhere. || ...
Would be the eyes of Consumer Society made only to/ watch
the Hierarchy of the Vanities?
Love that would deserve a comment of the nuances at which
send the poetic images, is in the Dream
and reality, an: " icon attached to the walls of the cold and insensitive,
/ of a cathedral of licentiousness, as is the Consumer Society, / which us
consumes the lives / for a Sens what we will not him know, never. "
Beyond the game of
words, is noted, the noun seriously, what cancels altogether the sacredness of
It's a transfer of meanings produced by the permanent
revolt poured out upon the type of society we live in.
Our life, the poet laments in the Feline Existential:
"is sells expensive at the counter of the Destiny / for to flavor the
Debauchery, / subscriber with card of pleasures, all right / at the Consumer
Society." / ... "Empty promises /
and have lost keys of the Fulfillment / and now make, Moral to the
cartel of Laws / alongside the prostitutes politicians, of the moment
Violent language, as poetic arrows thrown and against
terrible degradation of politics, gives free course to the ideas, a type
nihilistic rebellion, raised to the rank of principle.
Absolutely current target is even more evident when, in the
poem, the Game of the Life with Death,, is criminalized in much the same terms,
"Consumer Society Famine garden, / as, great athletes, of cutting of incomes /
hysterical and false, scales of the Policy, / us skimp sparingly each, Moment ... ".
Changing the subject, vocable "moment" in
relation to "eternity", updates a note from the arsenal of specific
words from the language of the great existentialist thinker who was the mystic
After how attitudes
clearly atheist, when it comes to God and the church, in the poems of Cerin ,
update hardness of language, with particularities of existentialism of Sartre,
while Mathematics of the existence and many other poem, us bring back into the
cultural memory the image of that "monde cassé" perceived critical by
the frenchman Gabriel Marcel.
Perhaps the most
dense in complementary concepts the "existence", between the first
poems of the first volume, is Lewdness.
Are attempts to give definitions, to put things in
relationship through inversion with sense, again very serious accusatory, like
the one with address at
Sure, unhappiness of the being that writes such poetry,
comes not only from the consciousness of the fall of man in the world under the
divine curse, but and from what would be a consequence, rejection, up to the
blasphemy of the need for God.
The interrogation, from the poetry, Lewdness, which, seems
that leaves to the reader the freedom of to give particular answers, it's a
trick of the poet aware of what affirms, at masked mode: "The existence is
a ghost caught between two dreams, Space and / Time./ Peace will always be
indebted to the War with her own / weapons, Vanity of Democracy and
Dictatorship ./ Which Lewdness has not its
monastery and which murder /her democracy?"
The poem continues with a new definition of
"Existence" as a "gamble", accompanied by "Hope",
never left at the mercy of "free will", which would give to man the
freedom to change anything. It remains only the freedom of the being to
judge her own existence, eternal fenced
to can overcome the absurd.
of the poet him condemns, extroversion, at excesses, that, scatters, too
generous what has gathered hardly from the library of his own life and of
Paradoxically, the same temperament is the source of power
to live authentic feeling of alienation
and accentuated loneliness, until to feel his soul as a "house in
ruins", from which, gone, the being, fallen into "Nothingness",
more has chance, of to be, doomed "Eternity".
Remain many other comments of made at few words the poet's
favorite, written with upper case.
But, about, "Love", "God",
"Church," "Absurd", "Moment and Eternity",
"Silence" and "Death" maybe another time.
Would deserve, because this poet is not lacked of
inspiration so coveted by others, as wrote poet Magda Cârneci, but he must
beware of the danger of remaining an artifex,
and yet not to step too pressed the footsteps from Bacovia or Emil Botta,
toward of not them disfigure through excess.
"The poetry of
meditation on which a writes Sorin Cerin is not a versification of
philosophical truths, but a interweaving of revelations, about these truths. And
the ratio of intensity of these revelations and doubt from which are
constructed the truths is precisely the philosopher's stone of this poetry. Moreover,
secrecy of being able to fasten the lightning of the revelation is a problem as
subtle as that of keeping solar energy from warm days into the ones cold.
PhD Professor Theodor Codreanu: "Sorin Cerin is a paradoxist aphoristic thinker, of, a great
mobility of the mind, who controls masterfully the antitheses, joining them
oxymoronically, or alternating them chiasmatic, in issues with major stakes
from our spiritual and social life. Poetry from, the Free Will, is an extension
of his manner of meditation, imbuing it with a suitable dose of kynism (within
the meaning given to the word by Peter Sloterdijk), succeeding, simultaneously
the performance, of to remain in the authentic lyricism even when blames
"Ravens vulgar, necrophiliacs and necrophagous, of the Dreams".
PhD Professor Ioan Holban : "About the expressiveness and richness of meanings transmitted to
the Other, by silence, Lucian Blaga
wrote anthological pages. The poet of today writes, in Great Silences, a poetry
of religious sentiment, not of pulpit, but, in thought with God, in meditation
and in the streak of lightning of thought toward the moment of Creation. Sorin
Cerin's poetry is of an other Cain wandering in the wilderness, keeping still
fragments from the joy of Eden, to exit from "Vise" of the world,
where, at the fallen man, collapses the horizon of soul, in the rains of fire
and traces of lead. "
PhD Professor Maria Ana Tupan : "The
lyrical meditations of Sorin Cerin have something from the paradoxical mixture
of despair and energy of the uprising from
Emil Cioran's philosophical essays. The notification of tragicalness and
grotesque of the existence, does not lead to psychical paralysis, but to
nihilism exorcised and blasphemous. Quarrel with "adulterine God" -
appellation shocking, but very expressive for the idea, of, original sin of ...
God who must be conceived the evil world through adultery with Satan -
receives, accents sarcastic in vignettes of a Bibles desacralized, with a
Creator who works to firmament at a table of blacksmith, and a Devil in whom
were melded all rebels hippy-rap-punk-porto-Rican:
alcoholic, of a universe, greedy, paltry and cynical, drinking by God at the table of Creation,
on the lachrymose
heavens of Happiness, scrawled, with graffiti by Devil,
If the poet has set in
the poem, To a barbecue. an exercise of Urmuz, success is perfect. Not only,
ingenious jumps deadly for the logic of identity from one ontological level to
another, we admire here, but and tropism, of, a baroque inventiveness of an
Eucharist inside out, because in a
universe of the life toward death, the one that is broken is the spirit, the
word, to reveal a flesh ... Deleuze, animal, described as the meticulous anatomical
map of a medical student. The poet us surprise by novelty and revelation of the
definition aphoristic, because after the first moment of surprise, we accept
the moralizing scenery of the time, with a past, dead, a future alive, and a
present, illusory, contrary to common sentiment, that the lived life is our ego
certainly, that only the present really exists, and that the future is a pure
hypothesis. Cerin, redefines the human being as, finding the authenticity in
multiplication mental of ternal reality and as existentialist project ".
PhD Professor Mircea
Muthu: "The desperation to find a Sens to
the contemporary existence fill the poetic testimony of Sorin Cerin, in which
the twilight of language, associated with "broken hourglass" of time, is,
felt - with acuity tragic - of, "our words tortured."
turned towards self itself, of "the
mirrors of the question" or of "the eyes" fabulous, of the Ocean
endlessly, is macerated at the same temperature febrile, of voltaic
arc, enunciated - in short - of the phrase "rains of fire".
PhD Professor Cornel
Ungureanu : "Sorin Cerin proposes a poetic speech about how to
pass " beyond ", a reflection and a meditation that always needs
capital letters. With capital letters, words can bear the accents pressed of
the author who walks. with so much energy on the realms, beautiful crossed by
those endowed with the grace of the priesthood. Sorin Cerin ritualization times
of the poetic deconstruction, if is to we understand properly the unfolding of
the lyrics under the flag of the title. "
PhD Professor Ion Vlad : "Sorin
Cerin has defined his poems from the book " The Great Silences ",
" poems of meditation ". Undoubtedly, reflexivity is the dominant of
his creation, chaired by interrogations,
riots, unrest and dramatic research of SILENCE,
topos of the doubts, of the audacity, and, of the adventure of the
spirit, in the permanent search of the truth, and his poetry follows to an
axiology of an intense dramatic. Is the lyric of the lucidity, meditation and of
genuine lyricism ".
Ph.D. Lecturer Laura Lazăr Zăvăleanu:"Intellectual
formed at the school Bucharest, but sensing the need to claim it admiringly,
from the critical model, of the school Cluj, where he identify his exemplary
models in the teachers, Ion Vlad and Mircea Muthu, Sorin Cerin builds and the
poetry intertextual, because the poet of the Great Silences, declares all over, his experts, identified
here, intrinsically, with Blaga ( through philosophical reflection and prosodic
structure, sometimes deliberately modeled after Poems of light) and Arghezi. The
very title of the volume, the Great Silences, impose the imperative, of an
implicit dialogue with the poetry of Arghezi bearing the same title. At the
searches feverish from the Psalms of
Arghezi, of a God called to appear, answer them here the interpellations
indefatigably of an apostate, believer, that is torn in the wilderness of the
thought and of image broken mirrored by the world declared, between love
denouncer, and affectionate revolt,
between curse incantatory and disguised prayer, of eternally in love, without
being able, to decline, in reality, fervor, although the word has experimented,
aesthetic, the whole lexicon, blasphemously and apocalyptic. A duplicity of salvation, in fact, that -
shouting the drama of alienation and of introspection missed, as and the
impotence of the meeting with the other, or fear of overlapping with him, in a
world whose meaning is wandered into "darkness of the camps of
ideas", at the interference of a time and of a space reached ' at the end
of border "- gives birth, in the litany, `a rebours, the signs of creation redeemed, in full feast cynical,
"on the table of potter of love".
PhD Professor Călin Teutişan: "Poetry of Sorin Cerin
declaim a fatal nostalgia of the Sense. Thinking
poetic trying his recovery, from disparate fragments, brought back together by
labor lyrical, imagining a possible map reconstituted, even fragmentary, of the
world, but especially of the being. Using of metaphors, neo-visionary, is
context of reference of these poems, crossed,
from time to time, of parables of the real, "read" in the key
symbolic, but and ironical. Cynicism is entirely absent in the lyrics of Sorin
Cerin. This means that the lyrical personage, what speaks in this pages,
namely, consciousness lyrical, put an ethics pressure over reality, thus
forcing her to assume own forgotten truths. "
PhD Professor Cornel
Moraru: "Prophet of existential
nothingness, the poet is part of category of the moralists, summing up in a
fleeting manner, precepts aphoristic, and rough projections from a ecstatic
vision of the end of the world. His meditations develops a furious rhetoric on
theme "nonsense of Existence", although expressing more doubts than
certainties, and questions than answers. The intensity of involvement in this
endeavor lyrical, touches, at a time, odds extremes: from jubilation to
sarcasm, and from indignation again at ecstasy ... "
PhD Professor Ovidiu
Moceanu:"Through the cemeteries of the dreams, volume signed by
Sorin Cerin, poetry of the great existential questions seeks a new status, by building in texts
which communicate underground, an image of man interrogative. "Cathedral
of the existence" has her pitfalls,
"Absolute truth" seems unattainable, "White Lilies of the
truth" can kill, "if not ventilates pantry of mind," the poetic
ego discovers rather a "God too bitter" ... All these are expressions
of a state of great inner tension, in which the lucidity has wounded the
revelation, and has limited the full living of the meaning of existence. "
PhD Professor Dumitru
Chioaru: "Speech prophetic, philosophical or
poetic? - It's hard to determine in which fits texts of Sorin Cerin . The
author, them incorporates on all three into a personal formula, seemingly
antiquated, aesthetic, but, speaking with breath of, poeta vates, last words before Apocalypse. An apocalypse in which
the world desacralized and dominated by false values, ends in order to can regenerate
through Word ".
PhD Professor Ştefan
Borbély: "Spirit deeply and sincerely religious, Sorin Cerin
desperate search for the diamond hidden in the darkness of the rubble, of the
ashes. A whole arsenal of the modernity negative - cups of the wilderness,
water of the forgetfulness, slaughterhouses, the feast continuous of suffering,
monkey of rotten wood, etc., etc. - is called to denounce in his lyrics,
"lethal weapons of the consumer society" and "the madhouse"
of the alienation by merchantability of our everyday existence. The tone is apodictically, passionate,
prophetic, does not admit shades or replicas. "The new steps of
faith" are enunciated peremptorily as hope of the salvation collective,
"divine light" it shimmers in, deliverer, at end, still distant of
the torture, but on the moment, the poet
seems to be preoccupied exclusively rhetoric eschatological, glimpsing
decadence, resignation moral or ruins almost everywhere where it can to walk or look "
Neagu: "Defining for, this writer
seems to be rightfully, the doubt, as the cornerstone of his poems
(Mistake pg.73). I congratulate the
author, for his stylistic boldness from " From the eyes of the divine
light, page 81, as well as from the
other sins, nestled in his creator bosom. I think Romanian literature has in
Sorin Cerin a writer 3rd millennium that
must be addressed with more insistence by criticism of speciality"
Marian Odangiu: "Lyrical poetry of Sorin Cerin is one, of, the essential questions:
the relationship of the Being with the Divinity, in a world of increasingly
more distorted by point of view of value, -and distortionary the same time!-,
disappearance of some fundamental benchmarks - attracting after themselves of
interrogations overwhelming, and infinite anxieties - absence all more
disturbing of some Truths, which to pave
the way to Salvation, deep doubts
demotivating on the Meaning of Life, absurd raised at the rank of existential
reason, feeds the fear and anxieties of the poet. Such, his lyrics develop a veritable rhetoric
of despair, in which, like an insect hallucinated of Light, the author
launching unanswered questions, seeking confirmations where these entered from
far in dissolution, sailing pained, but lucid, through images and metaphors
elevated and convincing poignancy, builds apocalyptic scenarios about Life,
Love and Death ... "
Eugen Evu: "... Books seem to be objects of worship - culture - own
testament of a ceremonial ... of, the neo-knowledge, Socratic-Platonic under
sign, " the General Governing of the Genesis " for instance. What is
worth considered is also, the transparent imperative of the author to
communicate in native language, Romanian. The loneliness attributed the Sacred,
is however of the human being, in her hypostasis reductive, of the human
condition .... How Vinea wrote the poet sees his ideas, or the mirroring in the
' room with mirrors ' of the universal library. A destiny, of course,personal,
largely assumed, nota bene. In the volume, the Political, at the extreme of H. R.
Patapievici poet is well cognizant of the problem Eliade, of the "fall of
the human in politikon zoon"... Between rationalism and irrationalism,
Sorin Cerin sailing on the Interconnection Ocean. "
